Beautiful views!

The mountains and valleys are beautiful. The snow melt is high this time of year. Snow on the mountains gives a good contrast. Views on the sunshiny day were wonderful.

There are no words to describe the beauty of this place. Exceptional beauty. Vistas stretch on as far as the eye can see. Already looking forward to a return trip. When you go, be sure to take your camera and prepare to be astounded!

We rented 4 wheelers to explore the mountains. This was a great way to see the scenery. We came up on a hidden cabin that was really scenic.

Camping, fishing, biking, hiking, a mountain recreation paradise. Great place to stop and stay going to or coming from Yellowstone Park.

I drove through Bighorn National Forest from Dayton to Shell on US 14. The drive is amazing and there are many locations for hiking and camping. I definitely recommend stopping at the Sibley Lake picnic area, as well as the Shell Creek Rest Stop.

Beautiful drive, need 4-wheel drive for the area we went to. Very peaceful and quiet. Drive slowly, yield to uphill traffic, and pack some snacks. Don't forget the sunscreen! Park Reservoir fishing is very relaxing and usually not too packed, unless it's a holiday weekend...then it can be busy. Day trips are relatively easy.

This drive is not for those who have issues with very tight turns or for those afraid of heights. It is a beautiful drive and worth the time it took to get over and through it. We experienced temps in the 50s'/60s at the bottom and snow showers at the top. One cool part is that we stopped as a... More
